Boston Celtics forward Jae Crowder said an MRI on his injured left elbow confirmed no structural damage, and while Crowder deemed himself day-to-day, he appears unlikely to suit up for Wednesday’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
A. Sherrod Blakely: Per @bos_celtics_pr, Jae Crowder has a sore left elbow and will not return to today’s game against @knicks. X-Rays were negative. “We don’t know yet,” added Rivers. “We just don’t know. I would say it’s 50/50 [chance he is/ is not ready], but we don’t know right now.”
Adam Himmelsbach: Jae Crowder is back. “I was gone two games but it felt like two weeks.”
Kyle Draper: #Celtics coach Brad Stevens says Jae Crowder and Al Horford will not play tonight vs #Warriors. Al and Jae will go on trip
Scott Souza: #Celtics forward Jae Crowder (ankle) said not to rule him out tomorrow night in Detroit.
Jeff Goodman: Celtics forward Al Horford will be a game-time decision against Golden State tonight, sources told ESPN. Jae Crowder not expected to play.
Jay King: Jae Crowder is out again tomorrow, at least.
Stevens did cut his team some slack, noting that Jae Crowder, Al Horford and Marcus Smart haven’t been on the court together at the start of the season, and that does nothing to help team chemistry and rhythm on the court, not to mention spacing. “Losing guys out of our lineups, obviously Jae and Al and Marcus — we haven’t had all three of those guys in one game; those are three of our best defenders. “But the reality is that even with that, even with the idea that one, two, or three of those guys are out at once, that we should be better than we’ve been. I don’t think the group that’s played will necessarily be, especially with the group that we had out last night, I don’t think we’re going to be a top-10 defense. But we can be 12th or 13th, right at the end of the season, that’s for sure.”
Scott Souza: #Celtics coach Brad Stevens: Kelly Olynyk (shoulder), Jae Crowder (ankle), Al Horford (concussion) all out tonight.
Jay King: Jae Crowder feeling “much better” today but likely out two weeks, per Stevens.
Boston Celtics forward Jae Crowder suffered a left ankle sprain during Wednesday’s win over the Chicago Bulls and is expected to miss at least a week of game action, according to Celtics coach Brad Stevens.
Crowder’s ankle twisted awkwardly after landing on the foot of Bulls guard Rajon Rondo in the second quarter. Crowder crumpled to the floor in obvious pain as play continued before hopping on his right foot to the locker room. Crowder left the arena on crutches. “Jae sprained his ankle; that’s all I know,” Stevens said. “I was told that it would be at least a week, and then we’ll see after. But I don’t think we’re into it enough to make an assessment on that timeline. It doesn’t sound like he’ll be back any time soon.”
Jay King: Celtics announce Crowder won’t return to the game after suffering a sprained left ankle.
A. Sherrod Blakely: Ainge says Jae Crowder has bone bruise, will not require surgery. #Celticstalk
All signs point toward Jae Crowder returning to Boston’s lineup when the Celtics take on the Trail Blazers at 10 p.m. tonight in Portland, Ore. Crowder, who has been out since suffering a right ankle sprain on March 11, fully participated in Wednesday’s practice and reported Thursday morning that he remains on track to play tonight. “I’m feeling pretty good,” he said prior to this morning’s shootaround at the Moda Center. “Minor soreness from practice yesterday. I’ll go through shootaround today and really see how it feels, but I feel pretty good.”
Adam Himmelsbach: Brad Stevens says Jae Crowder will try to practice in Portland on Wednesday.
While there’s no return set in stone, Stevens sounded very encouraged that Crowder will be back in Boston’s lineup sooner rather than later. “There would be a good chance he’d be back along the trip, but I don’t know when,” said Stevens. “We’re not going to bring him back until he’s cleared to play by our trainers and doctors and he feels good about it. He’s itching to play and making good progress, and obviously he’s a big, important part of our team.”
Jay King: Stevens on Crowder’s timetable from the initial injury: “Minimum of two (weeks). But most likely that’s a very, very conservative estimate. He said he’s feeling better but there’s a big difference between that and playing a game.”
Scott Souza: #Celtics coach Brad Stevens: Jae Crowder out “a couple weeks” with high ankle sprain.
